About Me

I am the Founder and Executive Director of the Coexist Initiative, a multi-global award winning Kenyan NGO working across Kenya and the entire East Africa region as well as parts of Southern Africa. We work to promote gender transformation, human rights and social justice by targeting and working with men, boys and communities. I am a senior partner at Mululu Consultants and a co-founder and co-chair of the Kenya National Men’s Alliance for Gender Justice.As Executive Director, I oversee budgetary duties of the organization and coordinate a team of 30 staff working across Kenya. I also coordinate the consultancy arm of the organization currently with fifteen organizations across the world. Coexist has won numerous international awards and been selected by experts in the field as one of the most effective organization’s working to end violence against women and girls by addressing negative socialization processes, negative cultural practices, stereotypes and masculinities.
